Simple forms put into practise 

Horizontal Space is volume of constant height, moving horizontally emptying or filling according to the function.

Born to be divided into two units, the house is characterized by a large central hall, with breaks in the structure projected towards the outside. Wide steps leading to the entrance introduce a longitudinal consecutive space.

The living room, passing from one part of the house, opens with large windows to the garden and into the country. The teak floors warm the environment and a stone wall covered with white sheets creates a staggered, almost sculptural material. In the master bedroom a stone fossil divides the room and generates a large shower with a satin-like floor. A translucent sliding island creates the bathroom.

The villa also has two further bedrooms with ensuites, a laundry and a bathroom for the living area. The rear, much more austere, has a balcony and the basement is used as a gym and garage.
